Post by: technoJ on December 15, 2016, 08:04:24 AM
Im in love with that model. Im looking for a 7+ seater 4x4 .

I read only bad things about those truck.

Does anyone have had a good one, with no timing chain problem ? Or they ALL stretch bad ?

Find one that's already been through the retro fit with newer chains.  :shrug:

If you're talking to folks with 2010 models, you won't get any response about the timing chains. Those models (supposedly) aren't effected by the problem.

Ive read in this forum that even 2010 and 2011 are affected, might be less official, but still...

It seems risky to get that model :(

Then, consider a 2012. It's the last year for the original body style.

Price is not the same than an 07-08... And not sure about timing chain reliability either...

Am I over reacting and some of you guys own 07-08-09-10 that DO NOT have timing chain issue ?

Possibly! Consider the '08 was never involved in the timing chain SCA and that program ended for the '09 model year. Also, any problems with the '10 and beyond are few and far between.

2010 engine here.
im at 119,000 this morning..... no chain issues.
I recently had a UOA @ 116,502 miles - and Iron levels were low.    Low iron=no timing chain wear...
